Phytotechnology: Emerging Trends

M. Daniel (Author) Arun Arya (Author)

This book highlights the rapidly expanding horizons of Plant Sciences. The conventional aspects of Botany remain the backbone of this subject, but the growing population and environmental compulsions urge man to explore new avenues to tackle the problems of society. Most of these areas, which are interdisciplinary in nature and provide new and better solutions, are pursued vigourously by researchers in Plant Sciences. Medicinal plants including Nutraceuticals, Biofuels, Natural Dyes, Biofertilisers, Biopesticides, Plant propagation methods including Tissue culture, Plant Genomics, Proteomics, Climate change and Remote sensing techniques inclusive of GIS are some of the such emerging areas focused in this book. The present book contains a good number of scientific articles penned by expert researchers in all these fields. Since researches in these areas are pursued in many of the Research centers and Universities, this book will be a valuable and essential reference book for one and all who are interested in these subjects.
